Aguirre Spring Park

This is a view in Aguirre Spring Park on the back side of the Organ Mountains near White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. A beautiful park, full of oaks, chemise, cactus, rocks and camp sites. There is horseback riding near the entrance. It was a great place to paint. This was painted plein air with pastels. This painting was lost in the Bastrop Fire in Septembe,r 2011, when our home was burned along with 1600 others.
